The vintage touch is an integral part of the maximalist style for a living room, whether it is antique vases, antique books or classic furniture. And for those who dream of an original maximalist living room, we can also upcycle the furniture with a coat of paint and a new fabric to add a touch of colorful mix & match!

6. Plant maximalism in a living room
The maximalist style is okay, but in a zen and soothing living room, how do you do it? We put on the plant with a painting of a deep green, a graphic and luxuriant wallpaper, a string of green plants and wooden furniture. With a mix and match of mismatched cushions and an ultra-soft XXL sofa, the effect is assured.
7. Maxi colors for stylish living room
One of the characteristics of the maximalist style being not to be afraid of the color, one does not hesitate to let go for a living room which throws it. The good idea? Play on the complementary to add contrast and depth, by boosting a palette of blues with yellows and reds… not to mention the shop windows and antique furniture!

Because there is not only blue or dark in maximalism , we dare to use warm tones for a mix of Scandinavian, vintage, art nouveau and modern. A real mix & match as we like them, with the inevitable accumulation of decorative objects, paintings and cushions … in velvet, of course, maximalism obliges.
9. A maximalist mix and match in a living room that breathes
Yes, you can mix decorative plaster and colorful paint, luxurious plaid and velvet cushions, bohemian fringed rugs and vintage textured glass vase. This is the genius of maximalism in a living room : anything goes, the floor harmonizes everything and a simple sofa lightens the decor! The dog is optional.
10. Colorful maximalist room
In addition to colors, the maximalist style also favors prints and patterns. Tablecloth, cushions, blankets and rugs, many are the objects in your home that can give pride of place to maximalism. You can therefore combine geometric patterns, stripes and trendy prints.
11. The maximalist style invades the walls
To move towards the maximalist interior very smoothly, only bet on two or three small, simple but eye-catching accents! A few floral images on canvas are able to embellish any contemporary room in the blink of an eye, while making it more expressive and close to nature. Flower arrangements as well as floral wallpaper have become an integral part of modern interior design. For this reason, the interior should not be deprived of their graceful touch.
12. Floor-to-ceiling paintings and frames
A wall of frames, or even “a gallery wall”, is a versatile decoration idea, suitable for small spaces as well as large volumes. The solution effectively makes it possible to decorate a large area without necessarily having to resort to an imposing work. Playing on contrasts and harmonies turns out to be a particularly interesting approach, allowing you to set the tone for the rest of the decor and infuse the atmosphere you want. Thus, one can either prefer works framed in the same range of colors, for more softness, or to marry several of them in very different styles and tones, for an underlined eclectic inspiration.
13. A mix of styles for a maximalist interior at will
When we talk about living room + dining room decoration, we do not set limits in terms of colors and materials. You can easily mix styles, skip eras and combine your modern furniture with neo-baroque or art deco accessories, for example. Feel free to mix your favorite colors and play with the materials. Finally, do not forget to add dazzling accessories that promise to further boost your decoration.
14. In the maximalist kitchen, everything is in sight
For uninhibited and kitsch cuisine, we hide nothing. On the contrary, everything must be in sight. To do this, we swap the closed shelves for open storage where we can quietly display our pretty dishes. We leave the spices in evidence, we revisit a wall with a slew of kitchen utensils. You can also store the cups and plates in display cases or a china cabinet.
15. Display your favorite things: a curio cabinet at home
A maximalist interior is a true museum. If you don’t like to throw away but rather keep everything, this trend is for you. Do you love to hunt for antiques? With this decoration, display them as you wish. On shelves, in showcases, on furniture: sculptures, indoor plants, typewriters, books, and all kinds of knickknacks will find their place perfectly.
